  An Englishman: Good Evening: Checkmating the Queen! If 34.Qg2,Ne3+; 35.Bxe3,Rxg2; 36.Kxg2,Qe4 and the White position collapses.
Jan-12-13  rogl: Or, in your line, simply 36...Bxf3++ 37.Kxf3 Qh5+ picking up the rook.

  WorstPlayerEver: 8 years have changed a lot:

26. Kh1 Qd6 27. hxg6 Nxe3 28. Qxe3 Qxf4 29. Qd3 Qf5 30. Qxf5 Rxf5 31. Ne4 Rf3 32. Nd6=

Sep-01-19  NBZ: <WorstPlayerEver> Yes 26. Kh1 is indeed better than 26. hxg6 since White puts up a proper fight for the g-file. In the game White just got slaughtered on the g-file.

Even so it doesn't take away from what a nice move 23. ... h5! is, since without that move Black would be clearly worse.

Oct-05-19  RookLifter: Really nice defensive play by Ulf turning white’s attack into a black counterattack and white falls like a cardhouse...

That could probably refer to about half of Andersson's games.
